Support Tyler Kuntz in his “KMs for Kids” Fundraiser for AutismBC!
“As the father of a son on the spectrum, I understand the hurdles many families can face and the financial strain of finding resources and programs that suit a child’s needs. AutismBC has been a resource and advocate for many, and I want to help them in their mission.”
I am committed to riding the 60 km round trip commute to work until April 2nd, World Autism Day.
I’m riding to raise awareness and my hope is that every kilometre I ride gets us closer to providing resources and support to families with kids on the spectrum. Thank you for your kind consideration and your help in my efforts to raise awareness and contribute to the great programs at AutismBC.”
